His research interests include large, collaborative, multi-centre clinical trials and he is a member of the Executive of the ANZCA Clinical Trials Network. He was an investigator on the recently completed Balanced and NeuroVision trials. Current interests include being Principal Investigator on the MASTERSTROKE trial, a large randomised trial looking at the effect of induced hypertension and outcome in large vessel occlusion ischaemic stroke. This programme of research is being extended to include potential future treatments in stroke including head cooling and physiological and pharmacological treatments using anaesthetic drugs and gases.

This work aims to aid communication of risk and improve understanding of risk for patients and clinicians.
